Cinedigm has bought its first original series for its upcoming OTT channel CON TV.
Alpine Labs’ hybrid reality competition Fight Of The Living Dead follows nine YouTube stars who try to survive a simulated zombie apocalypse.
CON TV will play additional original series as well as films and TV from Cinedigm’s library of more than 52,000 titles, live events and panels filmed at conventions.
The channel is a partnership between Cinedigm and Wizard World, the largest producer of Comic Con and pop culture events nationally.
The channel does not cover annual July Comic-Con event in San Diego.
Cinedigm evp/digital networks Erick Opeka made the announcement with Alpine Labs co-founder Kevin Abrams and partner Jamie Denenberg and said the series was “a brilliant way to kick-off CON TV’s original programming roster and introduce this innovative crop of talent to new audiences.”
